Rated 5 out of 5 Beast!
I had Xperia Mini Pro earlier and then switched to HTC One! No, Beast! I call it as Beast, as it is the best phone I would say.
Best Audio, Camera, Hardware, Screen, Performance. What else does one need?

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Edgtor Great phone, But?
The only issues I have with the phone is the unlock key being on the top left corner and the volume keys being so sensitive. You basically need two hands to unlock the phone before you are able to go through the security process to unlock the screen. Now, when grabbing the phone to unlock it you tend to hit the sensitive volume keys which tend to lower my ringer volume without me knowing and missing my calls. My last two phones, yes one being an HTC, had the unlock button at the bottom in the center next to the home and back keys. Other than that, it is a well made phone. Very easy to use. If you've had a smart phone before and know the in's and out's of an android, this phone is a cake walk. Very good phone!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by HTCLarry Best Smartphone I have had to date
The HTC One is everything one could want in a smartphone. When I switched from the HTC One X to One X+, that was an incredible improvement but the HTC One is a huge step above the One X+. Light, thin, great battery life, great to hold plus all the new features make this one awesome smartphone.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BekkaF HTC is the One, the Only One
I've been playing with my new phone for almost a week now, and have to say, this is the best smartphone I've ever owned to date! Although I still have a lot to learn about my phone, I find many of the apps to be newbie friendly. The phone is fast, intuitive, wonderful and really, all the information you need to know or learn you can find easily on the HTC site. The build quality is exceptional. I read negative reports on some sites that the workmanship in regard to the end caps over the speakers was shoddy. I have to say, so NOT true. The covers over the speakers on the front ends of "my" phone are flush to the phone, no ends are sticking up, the covers are well put, and nothing rattles at all. My HTC One is serious eye candy. Sound quality as others have said, is unbelievable coming from this phone; no tinny-ness, only the well rounded sound put out by Beats. I won't expound on the stereo concept. But I would like to mention sound quality in regard to calls. I'm hard of hearing. I have absolutely no problems hearing my phone calls on my HTC One. What is especially nice is the ability of this phone to drown out background noise and channel full sound of the talker when I am in crowds & vice versa. I was never able to carry on phone conversations if I was in large crowds of people; it was a futile effort. I'd have to walk out into parking lots or find quiet hallways to make and take calls. The HTC One has changed that ; ) Even in crowds, my phone-talks are crisp and clear. I love the blink-feed and the ability to turn on my phone and there it is; the news I read every morning. No more pulling up a browser to go to the Huff. I'm there with a click of the on button. This is one phone I'll be glad to own for the next two years. I don't think I will ever want to give this one up ; ) Great Job HTC!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ohyeah one of the best
Hands down this is a great phone!!! I love the new htc sense with blink feed. the HTC Zoe mode is the best. however i am not sold on the camera initially it looks like it takes great pics but when viewing the pics on any other thing ie print and your tablet the pics have a lot of noise, it needs more pixels in the ultra pixels. plus I miss the kickstand. But overall I'm in love with it.

Had the Samsung galaxy S3 after all the hype over the S2.Found the S3 to be a lot of features but these were in my opinion mainly gimmicks. Having the HTC desire s before the Samsung I preferred the build quality on the HTC and decided to go for the HTC one instead of the S4 and I am happy I did. The build quality of the one was instantly recognisable and the OS of sense 5 proofed to me to be intuitive and easy to use. Will be keeping this phone for some time, might only have 32gb memory but with a 2TB NAS drive and 4g its not going to be a problemï»¿

Rated 5 out of 5 This is definitely THE ONE.
I just got my HTC One a few days ago and this is the best Smartphone I've ever had the pleasure of owning. It fits perfectly in my hand, The screen is beautiful, It's fast and the battery has lasted me almost 2 days without charging and that's with me playing games, checking e-mail and running Pandora. The sound quality is amazing on this phone thanks to Beats Audio. The build quality is amazing and so great to look at. It feels, looks and works like THE ONE. Smartphone of the year in my opinion!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Scurvy Great phone, awesome battery life
This phone is really well-built. I never wanted a phone with a screen this large, but it's so thin and sleek that you don't even feel it in your pocket. The sound quality is awesome for a phone, and I have no idea why it's taken the industry this long to realize that speakers should be on the front of the device, rather than the back. That helps a ton in loud areas. The screen is very bright, and has very high pixel density, coming together in a really nice display.
The built-in infrared transmitter (remote) is a great gimmick. It's very useful if you can't find / don't want to reach for the remote #turning down the volume on the tv from the other room, etc#, and is great for showing off to your friends.
I'd say my single favorite feature of this phone is its battery life. I have gone two days without charging it, with normal, moderate use. Even in areas with no data connection, which tend to drain the battery life, the phone will still last for 18 hours.
Complaints: blink feed takes some getting used to, and scrolling through it can be tedious if it's not set to your home screen #have to manually scroll back to the top, which can be a long way). The angle of the edges makes it hard to press buttons with the hand you're using to hold the phone. The buttons are completely flush, which feels and looks great, until you try to find them by touch, especially in a dark room. It's hard to tell if you're pressing the power button or sticking your finger in the USB port on the bottom. Also, the phone's metal body tends to heat up a lot while gaming. It gets very hot.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Holiday HTC Nailed It
I have been an avid HTC consumer. I've owned producs such as the One S, Evo View, HTC media link, Sensation, and the first windows smart phone. While all of those devices were quality products for the time, I often felt as if something were missing. I continued to purchase HTC because of their bulid quality and attention to deatails. I honestly feel with the HTC One they have created the first complete phone, from buld quality, to software, to the specs, HTC has nailed it.
While watching all of the pre-launch reviews, I wasn't too excited about blink feed feature and the drop in megapixels, actually I was appauled by it. I've never been a fan of features that are forced upon the user and I felt calling the camera ultrapixels was just a marketing skeem. I must admit HTC, I was wrong. You truely are intuned with your consumers. Two of my favorite features on the phone are blink feed and the 4 Ultrapixel camera. I'm on blink feed daily and the camera produces great quailty pictures. The speakers are the envy of other less fortunate smart phones along with the sexy unibody build. I truely enjoy my phone all around. I've stuck with HTC from the beginning and will continue to do so. I'm looking forward to see the future will provide us coming out of HTC. SIMPLY BRILLIANT!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by genesis Easy to use for personal or business
I really enjoy the ease of the HTC one. I am an older individual and have had many phones as I always enjoy the newest technology to keep on top of things. But I have not found a phone that I enjoy as much as the HTC one. I am comparing this to my Iphone and Samsung Galazy 111.. However, my HTC One is becoming slightly outdated but once I am able to I will upgrade to the newest and not switch. I use this for business as well as personal so this phone runs for me 24/7 and it keeps up with me.. and that is what I need. I can't afford to be spending time on the phone with technical support and so far so good with this one and have had it over a year....Thank you HTC....

This is absolutely the best built smartphone to date. PERIOD! The material and quality to detail is everything that I expected from the iPhone 5 and didn't get. The curved back, the front facing speakers and the LED notifications are cutting edge. This phone has to be held and used to really be appreciated. It's blazing fast in just about every area too! While I haven't had a chance to take the camera through the paces yet, I'm impressed with the indoor stills I've taken so far. I like BlinkFeed and would like it even better if it provided more feed options or better still let me chose my own.
So far I am very happy with his phone!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Nyctalinth Amazing device
Iâ€™ve had the HTC One for almost a month now and am really loving it. The first impressions of this phone really stick with me over all this time.
Design: The design of the phone is stunning. I still find myself ogling my phone from time to time. Iâ€™ve had phones made of plastic, metal/plastic mix, but the all metal design of the HCT one just screams quality and style. At 4.7â€�, the HTC One is just the right balance between being small enough to handle, yet providing a knock-out screen for media watching. Being a right handed user, I wish the power button on top was on the right side instead of left for easier one handed use, but thatâ€™s my only nit-pick.
Sound: I still marvel at why it took so long to get great sounding front facing speakers on a phone. No more doing the right hand cupping to get the sound to be loud enough to hear. Plus the fact that it is stereo on top of that makes this incredible to listen to. This sounds better than my Macbook Pro speakers. Makes a big difference for having music in the background or for watching media (youtube, etc). But that is only half of the experience. The sound coming from the headphone jack via Beats audio is even better. Having had 2 phones with Beats audio, it would be hard for me to go without. Rating: 5/5
Screen: The 4.7â€� screen is just awesome. I use auto-brightness adjustment and it is always fine. Text from websites and email are crisp and images really look sharp as well. Rating: 5/5
Software: Iâ€™ve used other HTC Androids in the past and thought the HTC Sense software felt a bit over the top from the unlock screen with the silver ring to the home screen clock style and multi-tasking screen that looked cool, but wasnâ€™t all that easy to use. Sense 5 is exactly what HTC needed to do to refine the UI to be elegant and enhance Android. It no longer feels in the way, but a beautiful interface to the OS. The multi-tasking screen allows you to see all the apps quickly and close the ones you want with ease. The lock screen is clean and easy to customize with incoming texts, calendar and email notifications. The biggest change to Sense is the new Blinkfeed feature. Iâ€™ve read mixed things about this feature and I like it, but have played with it as my home screen off and on (you can make any of your screens your home screen if you choose). It is great for getting a quick glance at things that matter to you (news, twitter, facebook, etc) from a variety of sources in one place. I think it is a great new feature that will get better with updates. Rating 4/5
Camera: The camera on the HTC One is great. It has a wide angle lense, so you really get to capture more in the picture. The picture quality can be really stunning, especially in low light. Iâ€™ve heard enhancements are on the way which will improve normal daytime shots, but Iâ€™m pleased with the camera performance so far even without. Some of my favorite shots have come in evening light â€“ the camera sensor is so good, Iâ€™ve had several come out great that I thought would be too dark. The HDR and panorama modes are a great feature, so be sure to check them out. On top of the core technology in the camera sensor, you have HTCâ€™s Imagesense technology, so you can rapidly capture multiple pictures in a very short time (burst mode). But the best new features related to camera involve the new Zoe capture mode and highlight features. When you put the camera in Zoe mode, you record a 3 second clip of the moment. This serves 2 purposes â€“ you can go back to one of 20 moments in the clip and capture the still image you want (or do other cool things like object removal or create sequence shots). But the Zoe clips are the star of the new highlight video and HTC shares. When you go to your gallery of pictures from the day or event, the phone creates an automatic highlight video from user selected pictures in the folder. These videos are awesome â€“ they professionally blend still pictures with the Zoe clips to create 30 second videos with a selectable style and music. While these are great on the phone, HTC makes it easy to share these highlight videos (or any selection of still and Zoe clips) via the HTC Share feature. You upload these to HTCâ€™s site with a simple menu selection and then get a link to these that you can email or text to family and friends for them to review. This is a really easy way to share events with others. Way easier than manually downloading to a PC and messing with the upload to other sites and much more elegant than a simple picture upload to facebook. Rating â€“ 5/5
Performance â€“ Not much to say other than this phone is blazing fast. Everything I do has been snappy. While the built-in T-mobile software told me it recommended rebooting the phone periodically when I went too long, I dismissed that and am able to run the phone for weeks at a time without the need for reboots. I wish T-mobile had opted for the 64GB version of the phone, but coming from a 16GB device, 32GB will be fine for a long time. Rating â€“ 5/5
Overall â€“ I really donâ€™t know how HTC will top the HTC One. It has so many design and software features that are such a huge step forward. The things I wish I could change are more storage and more customization options in Blinkfeed. Iâ€™m very pleased with the HTC One and canâ€™t recommend it enough. HTC has focused on the core experience of the phone (instead of gimmicky features Iâ€™ll never use) and the result is a phone that feels refined and elegant. Overall Rating â€“ 5/5

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Zman It's the One
Honestly what else can you say about this phone?
I gave a 4 star for battery simply because it won't stand the ULTIMATE tests throughout the day, but gave an overall rating of 5 because every other categorie I'd give 6+ stars (but I can't).
The phone itself is just gorgeous, drop dead gorgeous. The speaker quality for once is no gimmick as well as the ultrapixel camera. What's really shocked me is how often I use BlinkFeed. If you think BlinkFeed is just a gimmick and ripoff of flipboard, you're wrong (as I was). It's those tiny moments in life, like waiting for a bus, waiting for a metro, waiting for your girlfriend to get dressed etc... those moments where you truly appreciate how BlinkFeed updates you on everything you love.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sam85 THIS IS A TERRIFIC SMARTPHONE
I upgraded from the HTC ONE X (AT&T), which I really liked but I love the HTC ONE. The camera is great, the sound is the best, it is super fast and is really smooth. It is the best looking phone on the market. My son has the IPhone 5 and likes my HTC ONE better. I gave it excellent in all areas accept esae of use, this is because the back and home keys have poor response. The keys work, it is just difficult to find the spot to make them work correctly which can be frustrating. I have seen an update out from Sprint that corrects this however I have AT&T and they do not have any updates fot this phone yet. I still recommend this phone over all others, it is the best!!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MomoRocks Best Phone on the Market!
The HTC One if the best phone I have ever laid my hands on. It has a premium feel to it. The phone looks great. I love that it is made of metal and it feels great in my hands. The display is 1080p and it real shows with the clarity on the screen. The front facing camera is better than any phone I have had, making it real easy to take "selfies" with friends. The regular camera is amazing, it catches all the little details and even takes great pictures indoors in a low-light setting. I have never used speakers on my other phones because they are terrible. Now I play music and videos from my phone all the time. Honestly, I have no complaints about this phone. I go through phones quite often (3 different phones a year) and there is nothing that compares to the feeling this phone gives me. I enjoy using the HTC One and I would recommend it to anybody and everybody!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Matstarr A look into the HTC One
Let's start out on the way the device looks. As soon as you open your box you will be absolutely blown away with the sexy look and quality build of the device. HTC has added in HTC Sync Manager, with this installed you can very easily have your Messages, Bookmarks, Contacts, photos and more transferred from your old device to the HTC One. The screen is amazingly gorgeous and stunning, the 1080p screen is easily the best screen out there to date (468ppi). HTC has also made Sense which is an interface to the phone lighter than usual BUT still a very useful tool for those who are deep into tech and even those that have trouble using a smartphone. Blink-feed has also been added to this addition of Sense. It is a crafty and elegant News-feed, Social Media and other interests all bundled into a scrollable feed. It saves time and makes finding what you need nice and easy all in one place and always at your fingertips. Another wonderful addition has been the implementation of the second front facing speaker. This device is the loudest device I have ever owned but its quality sound being produced here. If you like listening to music then this is the device for you, not to mention HTC has thrown in a pair of ear buds in the box to enjoy as well. Another key feature added is Zoe. Have you ever tried to take a pic of a moving object such as a baby, pet etc and ended up with a blurry photo???? Well good news those days are long gone with Zoe you can record a 20 second clip and then extract the exact moment you want as a photo. The camera also excels in low light and does all the tricks you may see other devices showing in their commercials such as combining many photos into one action photo. A camera feature that I find very useful is highlights, if you take many photos on one particular date the HTC One will blended them into a short video with music sort of like at the end of a wedding video, so you get to see an entire eventful day in a sharable highlight reel. The overall feel of the phone is just smooth scrolling all day no lag to worry about. Battery wise you guessed it HTC has also improved it on this device. I easily get 12-16 hours and Im what I consider to be a heavy user. All in All this device is top notch in quality and usefulness for the end user. I highly recommend you buy one because after all only one can be the One.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Totinen Samsung S4 is a better phone unfortunately. But I still like the One.
I am very disappointed with the software and some component of the hardware, such as the battery and processors performance. First we were downgraded from 7 screen panels to 4+the blinkfeed ( which you can't circle around anymore), it is making everything harder to reach. Second, there are really nothing impressive about the software. I was more happy with my HTC One X with 4.1.2 Android. I never felt this kind of disappointment in a phone upgrade in my entire life. First, with the new software release, you should fix all these issue, and clock the cores to work at 1.9mhz. For God sakes you are competing with Samsung. Second why didn't you perfect it to begin with. We are changing phones every six months.
On the other hand, it has nice hardware feel. It is a very nice phone to hold. Great screen. Good Camera ( couldn't you keep an 8mega ultra pixel camera).
I like the audio quality.

From the moment it comes out of the box you know you're holding something special. The Screen is THE best in the industry and looks beautiful! I was blown away by the front speakers - why didn't anyone do this before? The fact they got beats makes that bass sound great (I turned Beats off and immediately turned it back on)! Zoe camera was something I was worried about with the UltraPixel thing - that doubt was proven wrong within a few shots of the camera, love the highlight feature videos.
FAVORITE feature is the TV application - universal remote is nice - works well and I was even able to mess with a few friends at the same time.
This phone is THE best phone I have ever used - battery lasts a full day, even when I used GPS for a good amount of time. Was very surprised on the quality of this device and I will never look back again.
HTC Has a GREAT winner on its hands!
